Indignation

They sort of snuck this one in late-summer, and no one paid much attention. A few critics did, and it garnered some solid reviews.

I’m so excited I can barely contain myself. With no word yet on a North American release date for David Cronenberg’s 19th feature film release, at least we can revel in the reality that a trailer has finally been presented!

David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” gets the green light!!!

It’s not easy being a Cronenberg lover, so it must be far from simple being David Cronenberg himself. The now septuagenarian filmmaker(he turned 70 last month)has been struggling to cast and finance his latest project for months—what else is new.
